Hello, I have three sets of photos in here and I'm trying to decide, compositionally, which is superior in each set. Your thoughts would be appreciated!

Probably the 1st but I'd like to see more separation of the woman and the Steeplechase. Maybe if you'd move to the right and place her on the left and Steeplechase on the right.............OR crop tighter it vertically as it is.

The Tree would be C but again with a crop at the left side of frame.

The last shot is best of the pair.

I take it you're from Flushing. That's my old, hometown. I was raised there.

I like the crop on the last. The WB is good but what didn't you like about the original WB?

I was in Coney last week and I posted a thread in the forum, if you haven't seen it.
